Other people’s notes:

David has a great website containing his OU psychology revision notes. The ED209 section is here: http://psycho.yellowbell.net/ed209/ and also includes contributed audio from Síobhra Reid of some my notes (07-07-2013).

Arnold produced a really nice set of condensed revision notes in 2009 for a strategically chosen set of chapters in this course – see: http://www.foreignperspectives.com/revision-notes/ (09-12-2009).

I finally got to the end of TMA02 a few moments ago. As with TMA01, I don’t think its the greatest essay that I’ve ever written – in fact, I know it’s not the greatest essay I’ve ever written, but frankly, it’s going to have to do. But I do sincerely believe that it’s good enough for a pass 2 grade. If the return of TMA01 was anything to go by, I shouldn’t have long to wait to find out if it was.

As it is, I’ve spent so long on TMA02 that I’m now exactly where the course calendar says I should be. That’s a real problem as I’m trying to do SD226 simultaneously. (I can already hear the chorus of friends reminding me that they did say it would be madness to try this … yes, I know, but I am where I am 🙂 ).

There’s a couple of chapters from the “critical readings” book to do next, followed by working out what I want to do for my project, writing the proposal and obtaining ethical approval (TMA03). At least it’s not another essay to struggle with. I’m quite looking forward to the project – but then, I’m still really enjoying the course, despite my struggles with the assessment side of things.

As the deadline for the SD226 TMA01 passed a couple of days ago (and I’d managed to submit that assignment well ahead of time), I’m noticing that I’m developing my usual habit of checking to see if my tutor has marked it at least twenty times a day. I want to see my result for that assignment to convince myself that either DD307 TMA01 was a blip and I really can study two courses at the same time, or alternatively find out now that the wheels are starting to fall off and that perhaps I need to think about deferring one of the courses until next year. I’m not sure how to go about doing that, but I’m sure the information will be around somewhere on the OU website if I need to consider it.

For the moment, I’m sticking with the ‘blip’ hypothesis.
